Signs you’ve reached the end of your relationship


Your relationship is stagnant

Years have gone by and still you don’t feel like you’re going nowhere. All relationships have the potential of moving forward. It could be having a baby, moving in together, or marriage. This is to ensure that you explore other aspects of your relationship that you never experienced before. If you’re not in any way moving on up after years of being a couple, chances are one of you might decide to call it quits.

Lack of communication

Remember the days when you couldn’t go the whole day without talking? Now if you’re lucky you talk once or twice a week. The problem isn’t that you don’t have anything to talk about you just don’t want to.

You bottle up your problems

Instead of tackling problems as they arise, you sweep them under the carpet and pretend everything is perfect. You’d rather pretend that you’re in a good place, but your investment in the partnership is very little to none.

You’re at your happiest when separate

Half of the time when you’re together you can hardly crack a joke, laugh or even smile. However, it’s the total opposite when you’re away from one another. Relationships aren’t supposed to consume one’s happiness and if this is what you’re feeling then it’s time to accept there’s nothing left for you two.

Lack of excitement for each other’s accomplishments

In most cases when you achieve something the first person you want to share the exciting news with is usually your partner, because really you should be each other’s biggest supporters. But, in your case it’s the total opposite.

Listen to your instinct

There’s only so much advice that your friends can give you, in the end it’s all up to you. Your instinct will tell you when it’s time to let go.
